Philosophy & Vision
SEE is an acronym for the Science of Effective Energies. As a science we endeavor to study (as a group), through experiment and research, some available portion of the energies that effect and ultimately create the universe within which we move, live and have our being.
There are three fundamental premise that act as the foundation of our work.
1. There is naught but Energy and Light is Life
Let us imagine that there is just energy. Rather than seeking to name and thus separate this from that, what would happen if we took in the infinite variety in regard to quality. This is to say, what would we see if we were able to make a qualitative assessment in regard to the energies present in any given locale, at any given time? Let us consider that experiential life, what we call and term consciousness, is fundamentally qualitative. This quality can be measured in terms of frequency, and frequency can be translated into abstract terms (the very sounds or voice of consciousness) that transmit and translate experiential perception into the worlds of form.
Can we imagine that what we call our bodies, our environment, this universe, is all energy? Can we imagine our inherent oneness with the universe, that we, literally, are the universe, conscious to greater or lesser degrees, that we are a symphony of harmonics, color, and tone and from these, consciousness is realized vibrationally and manifested qualitatively?
To organize concepts of health and wellness into a sustainable direction it may best serve us to find a perspective that orients and sensitizes awareness in regards to quality. This curriculum is an attempt to establish a systematic assessment of the varied energies present, and then to make a careful diagnosis of the quality of those energies in any given moment or unit of time. For the purpose of this work, all energy can be grouped into 3 different qualitative stages, low, medium and high. These are vibrational associations, they are significant in relation to the laws of resonance and magnetism. High quality states are not necessarily better than low quality states, though we have found that signal distortion (applied against innate human potentials) is much more common as vibratory rates diminish and energy is thus effectively made more dense.
Why is this process necessary? How do we benefit as a tribe from the knowledge? Why would we endeavor to learn this technique of assessment and subsequent application? The answer we propose for consideration is thus - because we live in a conditioned field of energy and information. Each of us is a unit of energy in the environment, vibrating and thus alive, conscious to greater or lesser degrees, we inform and are informed by the world around us. We are not separate from life, we are swimming in it, submerged in a field of energy that conditions all aspects of what we call our local consciousness. To make truthful assessment, in regards to the quality of the conditioning being applied is a step toward true health and wellness both locally and collectively.
2. Energy follows thought
This second premise necessarily follows the first and becomes the tool by which force is applied. Can we agree that there is naught but energy? That everything is vibrating, resonant, and thus in some way, perceptibly or otherwise conscious. What then directs the movement, the variation, the transformation from one state to another, from one stage to another? If, when looking out, we see the ten thousand things before us, the endless permutation and variation, where and what is directing this movement? How is force being applied?
It is our 'thoughts' that direct us as units of energy. We 'think' and then our nervous system alights with energy, movement and vibration. These signals pulse through our bodies of manifestation and create a multitude of phenomena both locally and conditionally. There is an ancient phrase in Chinese Medicine translated as thus: "Qi is the commander of blood, and blood is the mother of qi.” Qi has much to do with our thoughts and is a term to quantify force potential applied over time. Physiologically this may be likened to the force of our neuro-kinetic responses and their ability to coordinate change in the now. Experientially it has much to do with pressure. Blood is the ocean of consciousness, it is by comparison the darkness from which all life eventually emerges. Blood is necessarily dense in comparison and as with all yang/yin relationships requires some motive application to initiate and set it alight. We are what we think we are. We manifest physically and emotionally in direct relation to our thoughts, which then in term initiate changes in the blood, which then gives rise to the ten thousand things.
If we are the sum total of our thoughts, we might inquire ‘where does thought come from?’ Is it ours, or was it given to us through the field itself? When we have an idea about something, where was the idea before it was realized? Was it made manifest from our unconscious? What triggered its release into conscious awareness? If we are all swimming in a conditioned field, don’t the varied signals of the field itself condition awareness into certain activities, responses and thereby initiate movement?
These questions continue to drive our experiments and research and more than anything bring us back to the importance of quality. We have found that while it is possible to distinguish to some degree where thoughts are coming from, either as products of a local metabolism or as a aspect of conditioning from some ‘external’ source, what seems to be most important is the quality of the thoughts themselves. High quality thought-forms generate high quality manifestations, low quality precipitates low quality. Thus to be able to identify, qualitatively, the nature of the energy present not only provides consciousness the ability to refine itself, but as a conditioned force will more likely potentiate higher quality manifestations.
3. As above, so below.
This final premise acts as the agent of directionality for force applied. Without direction, all energy, manifested as a type of force, may appear randomized. This appearance is a product of perspective which is the result of relative local density. Ultimately this premise suggests that nothing is random. That a directive is always being applied and that this directive has constant and uninterrupted influence over all bodies of manifestation, though measured against innate potential, awareness of this influence may remain unconscious. This directive acts from the more subtle upon the more dense, and is to say further that the more subtle and refined, the more directive force it applies on the more dense structures.
We can look at this premise through the lens of frequency - higher frequencies exert a directive or stimulating force upon lower frequencies, and lower frequencies serve to densify or localize the directive into some more tangible form of manifestation. Once localized, the original nature of this higher frequency being now held or localized more densely acts or informs this material through available resonant interaction. If no resonant interaction is possible, if there is no available receiver or receptor to translate or densify the signal, then little to no conscious transfer of influence is recorded through a change in vibratory nature. Where resonance can be applied, vibratory rates are altered, usually increased, thus imparting into the more dense manifestation aspects of a higher frequency and vibration. This process can be seen as the awakening of awareness and is in relation to the terms unconscious and conscious. The unconscious being infinite possibility as All is contained within.
SEE.School is a training program for licensed providers of Chinese Medicine (especially those of novice to advanced beginner experience levels) and doctoral students who have completed or are near to completing their Masters degree studies.
Building on our philosophy, we devised a curriculum of study and application to train licensed providers of Chinese Medicine in a technique that will enable them to objectively assess, in real-time, the nature of the forces that comprise a locality and to make a theoretical assessment in regards to their quality in the moment. Once assessed, a geometry, organized as a point prescription, which is elemental in nature, is given which will act to harmonize and integrate that particular energy into its highest quality potential. This point prescription isn’t static, which is to say it is not the only application available, but does allow new providers with a strategic method whereby outcomes can be more readily organized and interpreted.
This curriculum is designed for licensed providers of Chinese Medicine for a few important reasons. First, Chinese Medicine is philosophically rooted in the Yi Jing (易经), The Book of Changes. This ancient text lays out a system to analyze and interpret the nature of the universe and its application and interaction macro to micro. Studying the Yi Jing philosophically and astrologically is one application of its potential, but transfer of this knowledge across the platform of consciousness remains limited to the realm of the abstract mind, which is often very underdeveloped in modern times. Chinese medicine provides an application platform through its tools and treatment modalities to translate this abstract information into a more tangible form.
Second, Chinese Medicine provides a synthesizing application with both structural and textural potential in relation to the Yi Jing. We might say that Chinese Medicine is a realized application of the Yi Jing equipped with both a translational and practical toolset. Britannica.com has the following summation of the Yi Jing (https://www.britannica.com/topic/Yijing) “The main body of the work, traditionally attributed to Wenwang (flourished in the 12th century BC), contains a discussion of the divinatory system used by the Zhou dynasty wizards. A supplementary section of “commentaries” is believed to be the work of authors of the Warring States period (475–221 BC) and, as a philosophical exposition, represents an attempt to explain the world and its ethical principles, applying a largely dialectic method. Though the book was originally used for divination, its influence on Chinese minds and its universal popularity are due to a cosmology that involves humans and nature in a single system. The uniqueness of the Yi Jing consists in its presentation of 64 symbolic hexagrams that, if properly understood and interpreted, are said to contain profound meanings applicable to daily life.”
Chinese Medicine has suffered, especially at the novice to advanced beginner levels, from an inherent difficulty regarding application of its knowledge base. New providers (0-2 years of professional experience) are often well-trained in the basic applications of the toolset and the underpinnings of the cosmology but consistent and sustainable clinical applications are challenged by the inherent learning curve that ultimately only comes through experience, service and care given. Classically, this was mediated through long apprenticeships and students did not go off on their own for decades or longer. One of the key experiments of SEE.School is to see whether we can provide an 'objective' system that will allow new providers a more strategic means to interact with information that is by its nature abstract. Once sufficient experience has been gained, our own unique styles and preferences start to emerge, from here we can go off on our own following our intuition and inner guidance of how to respond and manage the cases that come before us.
